Conservation groups advocate for stronger migration policies

For ungulate species, migration corridors are fundamental to their life history.

Oregon Hunters Association (OHA), a group of conservation-minded sportsmen, urges the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) to develop and implement a policy to enhance and conserve migratory habitat for big game, and all wildlife that make seasonal movements.

Habitat connectivity – the degree to which separate habitat patches are connected – is a crucial factor for conservation of wildlife. Increases in urban and energy development has resulted in extensive habitat loss and fragmentation for many species in Oregon.
